Data Migration

When technology or features change, your data needs to change too

As products change through their life cycle, the structure of the underlying database, as well as some operational content, often needs to be updated. This can be because the version of a leveraged framework changes or when features are modified or added. By leveraging specific tools and patterns, Savas developers can make these changes seamlessly.

Our Approach

Our most common data migration projects

Technology Version Changes

We’re often brought in on projects to perform data migrations when there is a version change for a technology. An example of this is the version change from Drupal 7 to 8. In these situations, our developers work with the provided migration tools to make adjustments and additions based on your data. This way, your data remains intact and reliable between version changes.

API Updates

Data migration is often needed when an API changes or adds features. In these situations, we leverage industry recognized tools to record the changes to database structure, profile your existing data as needed, and write field level ETL (Extract Transform Load) procedures as needed.

Moving to New Technology

Of course, migrations are needed when changing database technology. In situations where one database technology is either replaced or supplemented with another, Savas developers aim to understand how to translate data models from one technology into another and write ETL procedures. These can be run once, in the case of replacements, or repeatedly as data is added in the case of additional database layers.

If you're looking for a seasoned digital partner with data migration experience, you've come to the right place.
